Our goal is twofold–to increase graduation rates and ensure a trained, motivated workforce for Georgia Power and other energy businesses in the state, and to create targeted programs and cultivate a pool of talented candidates for hard-to-fill jobs like lineworkers.
At the elementary-school level, Georgia Power gets involved with schools to emphasize energy conservation and awareness and the importance of math and science. As students move into middle school, our focus becomes career awareness, as we introduce potential energy jobs and possible career pathways.
At the high-school level, we focus on energy industry education and preparation for post-secondary education. We align career pathways to a specific career, skills and abilities for a student to be successful.
